here’s the little secret behind this photo. i was photographing this little line up of puffball mushrooms (or possibly false puffballs) that i found in my backyard today, when my camera slipped from its tripod and slammed into the mushrooms. the exploded puffballs were far more interesting than the shot i had been taking. the camera was fine. so, once again, a happy accident.
